Hello!I’m Heidi, an Educator On Fire!
I’m Heidi, an Educator On Fire! Are you one like me? Send me an email heidi@EducatorOnFire.com, I love connecting with other educators with a fire in their belly looking to make their way or have been around the block, in the educational landscape.
Any time I talk about education I get a fire like feeling inside! There is no containing it and the fire simply shoots out (sometimes needs an extinguisher or a person who can at minimum handle the heat or the debate!) I’ve been teaching long enough to have been thrown up on, sworn at, cried while drinking wine after a long day, I have lived “in the trenches”, I’ve been fed-up with administration, I’ve spoken up or back to principals, helped my colleagues, nurtured colleagues, and taught as well as modeled hundreds of lessons.
I’ve taught students as young as 5 and as old as 15 (early childhood/primary – adolescent/high school). My niche is literacy with a specific focus on primary grades. Reading Recovery teacher, Reading Specialist, and Literacy Coach, are just a few of my enjoyed roles.
